Rabbit-Proof Fence

In the book, "Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence" by Doris Pilkington Garimara, the fence was used in the 1930s by three Indigenous Australian girls for their route back home to Jigalong.

The girls taken from their parents in Western Australia as part of the Stolen Generation, escaped from the Moore River Native Settlement mission where they were being held and walked back to their family at Jigalong by following the rabbit-proof fence.

Phillip Noyce's masterpiece.
